Both are cloudy, monotonous and damp oceanic climates, but one of them has warmer winters and the other is considerably drier (despite the gloominess) and more "seasonal". Which do you prefer?

Tristan da Cunha, easily, because of the warm and moderate temps year round!

Edinburgh because of more interesting (colder) winters, but I love Tristan da Cunha as well

Tristan da Cunha easily due to it being much warmer year round.

Edinburgh easily. It has more chance of heat, colder winters with snow, higher diurnal range and more variability. Sunshine is pretty much equal so that's not a factor. And the main reason: there's 100 fewer days of rain and less than half the rain and there's not months with 7" of rain on 26 days with temps in the 50s. The winter in Tristan is absolute hell.Gets an E- from me, Tristan de cunha is an F-.

Both suck in summer but Tristan de Cunha is reliably warm up like Edinburgh. Tristan de cunha it is.

Tristan da Cunha for being mild year round, never being cold & having a record low of 4.6C

Tristan da Cunha. It's wetter, warmer and has no cold snaps.

Edinburgh. Has real winters, even the possibility to see some warm day during "summer", and has an ok precipitation patern. On the other side, Tristan da Cunha has to be the most depressing climate on earth outside the polar zones. It's the drizzle kingdom. No real warm and almost non existant winter.

I prefer Edinburgh for more seasonality and variability. Tristan da Cunha would be nice in terms of never needing any heating or cooling for your house, though.
